Get the fingers

Definitely get the stripping fingers, whether you get the new reel or not. I just switched to Sharkskin and they should add a set with every reel of line.

Check out the reels offered by Elkhorn. ...

Check out the Malibu Mini-X, around $600. I wouldn't stand in any kayak except the Freedom Hawk, but it's aroung $1800. Any other canoe or kayak and I want outriggers before I stand.

Went with Sharkskin

Instead of the Orvis Big Bug line, I got a chance to really field test Sharkskin, and I am now a believer. I own no stock in SA, so this is just one guy's opinion. I was using the Magnum 6wt on an...

Orvis Warm Water "Big Bug" Line

Anybody tried the Orvis Warm Water "Big Bug" Line? I'm trying to figure out what differences are between that and the Freshwater Bass taper they sell, other than $10. From the description it sounds...

I have had the action that fish liked change in the same stretch of river over an hour period. I started using the short strip-strip-stop, strip-strip-stop and was catching fish. The bite died and...

Flies for SM

Stinger hooks

Stinger hooks are sized differently than fly hooks, the B10S will work very well. I tied some last night on that very hook. Be sure to start tying on materials right at, or just past the bend. If...

Mono loops

If you go to a mono loop use 30 lb. test. The Perfection loop is absolutely the way to go. Any shop where you buy your line should do it for you. The only problem with loops is that they make a...

Korkers - me too!

They are the only boots I have ever used and I love them. The ability to change from a hiking to a felt sole is great. I have worn them for 6 seasons and they are still going strong. I just got a...

Both Flyred and Troutman have excellent suggestions. I tie my own 1/80 and smaller jigs and they do work great on Crappie. The other thing I would try are small streamers imitating minnows. I have...

Welcome SC - It's a good board.

Since LRO handles Orvis reels, I don't think you could go wrong with the Battenkill Mid-Arbor MAIII, for 5/6wt. at $140 - it has a great drag. Also excellent are...

Before you decide on a brand, you may want to decide if you want a regular reel or one with a large arbor (LA). The 2 advantages (that I know about) with a LA are faster retrieve and less coiling of...

Love those panfish

Here in C-bus, the ice is still covering some of the water. I went to a pond Saturday because I needed to fish bad. The Steelhead streams are still blown out. I had to cast over some ice to get to...

Love them streamers

Here's a sight for a Thunder Creek-like streamer.

Check out E. Pugliosi's fibers. The flies tied with it call for very sparse amounts. I can easily...

Old Reel

I have a Madison 7/8 that I still use for my sinking line. I believe it is equivalent to the Orvis Battenkill that they are selling now for $79. My old Madison was $50 as I recall. As long as all...

Heck, get 3 rods

If you have $700 to spend, why not get 3 rods. A 3wt, a 5 or 6wt and an 8wt. You would then be covered for about any situation. This would be doable using the TFO Pro series or the Orvis Cleawater...

I have moved to a 6wt for my Bass/Carp rod. I found the 8wt to be too heavy to cast all day and the 6 handles everything pretty well. The regular Bass tapers are fine, but take a look at the...

Love those Smallies

I totally agree with KY, Murray's book is excellent. Check out Murray's Hellgrammite and the James Woods Bucktail. Both effective and easy to tie.

Tarheel is right on track about the crayfish,...
